When I first got my galaxy the at the lock screen I could see an icon with a count of unread text messages on the right side of the screen, but now it has disappeared and I did not see any settings for it in the lock screen menu under settings. Is there a solution to this or was this the result of an update?

Hey man you can use this. Notification LockScreen Widget (available for free in the Google Play store). It gives following features.

  • View all dismissible notifications including missed calls, SMS, Facebook notifications, Gmail, etc.
  • Launch the app directly from the notifications list.
  • Combine multiple similar notifications into one notification with counter.
  • Allow full original notification content as it appears on notifications bar.
